Created in Conflict: British Soldier Art from the Crimean War to Today

Challenging perceptions about war and behaviour; presenting a new dimension to soldiers’ experience, creativity and skills.

Created in partnership with the National Army Museum, this exhibition will showcase the incredible resourcefulness and diversity of artwork made by British Armed Forces personnel. With important loans from the V&A, the Imperial War Museum, and the Museum of Military Medicine, the exhibition will feature a rich variety of resonant items including tankards made by soldiers in the trenches during World War I, game pieces carved by Prisoners of War during World War II, and toys and quilts made by convalescing soldiers.

Addressing a broad time period, Created in Conflict: British Soldier Art from the Crimean War to Today will consider the enduring questions raised by war, including ways of keeping in touch with home, patriotism, loyalty and the treatment of veterans. Throughout the exhibition paintings, photographs and insightful collaborations between veterans and contemporary artists will reflect the power of artworks to make us feel both better and worse about war.

FREE entry for members.
